Not Enough Troops ? or Truth
by Ray McGovern
It’s not an if, it’s a when.
Pentagon officials have indicated that they plan to send as many as 15,000 more troops to Iraq during the first four months of 2005, and President Bush continues to insist that “we will stay the course” until Iraq is stabilized.
Where will the additional troops come from? The Bush administration insists that there will be no draft, but the “backdoor draft” that has kept so many from the Reserve and National Guard on active duty has backfired, as quotas for new enlistments have not been met. So plans are already advanced for fully mobilizing the Reserve and National Guard.
